Symantec: China is number-one source of malware

binary
According to a recent study conducted by Symantec, more malware originates from China than any other country– 28.2%, in fact.

Close behind China is Romania, which is responsible for 21.1% of malware. Next was the United States at 13.8%. Symantec found that although the majority of malware appears to come from North American mail servers, the original source is usually abroad.

Interestingly, a great deal of malware now targets people in specific roles rather than the public at large. Individuals with titles such as “director, senior official, vice president, manager, and executive director” tend to be hit with more spam, as do workers in the public policy and defense industries.
